Read ‘About Meaningful Composition’ in the thumbnail picture above!
Our first semester book for approximately eighth grade writers “bridges the gap” from junior high writing to high school writing. Just like all first semester books from fourth grade up through and including ninth grade, this book contains a variety of projects in many areas (essay, report, creative, and more).
Pre-writing lessons include formal MLA-Modified Citations, moving from paragraph outlining to Section-Paragraph Outlining, comparing/contrasting writing, persuasive essay introduction, thesis statement development, plagiarism instruction, Character Ink’s signature Color-Coded Research, our Overview Source Method for source merging, Major and Minor Work differentiation, bibliography cards creation, merging sources, formal outlining, and more.
A few projects using a Sentence-by-Sentence (S-by-S) Outline and Writing From Given Material are included: The Meager Shoemaker story, debtors’ prison, Voltaire, and gangrene. Original projects abound, including biographical report over a explorer, vegetation research report, historical fiction story, missionary organization research report, persuasive letter of appeal, and more.
